I had a hair dresser that switched to torches after being into straight razors for awhile. She got bored easily…


#3

Fire and hairspray? How’s that coming along?


#4

The old trick of making dragonfire at ghost runs, or alike, during children camps. Don’t ask :wink:

I get my hair cut to a triple zero – the hair I have, anyway – but I still go to a traditional barbershop because I like the ritual of it all. But if I had hair, I’d go to a place like that just for the love of the craft. Old men, leather, and styptic.

Groan. Hair is dead. It does not “evolve”.


#7

Soooo, how’s it smell?


#8

Yeah, I was going to say that falls in line with the “shaving makes your hair grow back thicker” myth.


#9

Seriously. Noseplugs, please.


#10

Even if it were alive, it would not evolve. Unless…OMG, what’s my hair doing up there?!


#11

That was my first thought. Ugh, burning sulfur and eggs. That place must smell terrible.


#12

And he’s just so busy.
Busy, busy.
Busy scissors…


#13

Saw some other guy doing this a year ago.

Burnt hair smells horrible.

I am not one to pay more than $20 for a hair cut.


#14

He also does bikini waxing.

That explains your haircut.*
 

  • Take that, your haircut!

#15

You can’t see it under the helmet anyway.


#16

You’d think a barber would know more about hair…


#17

I can think of a person for whom this would be appropriate.


#18

He aught show this technique to the woman with the gasoline.


#19

common in Turkey isn’t it?

But what about the smell?! Burning hair has a really awful smell. You’d need an exhaust fan over the chair.
